Three and out: Manning not a fit for Miami?

Miami not considered Peyton’s Place? Over the next few days, all fantasy owners will hear about is possible destinations for Peyton Manning. While I think the best fantasy spot is in Arizona, it seems like Miami is the early favorite to land the superstar quarterback. Or maybe not? Manning has always tried to avoid media frenzies and paparazzi-like treatment, which is exactly what he could be dealing with in South Florida. There is already a billboard supporting the website manningtomiami.com, which implores fans to voice their support of the move. Manning has never been confused for a big-city guy, so playing for a team like the Cardinals might actually be more appealing — even if it resides in the NFC. Things are going to get interesting …

Brandon Lloyd interested in Patriots: The 2012 free-agent wide receiver class is a deep one, with big names like Vincent Jackson and Marques Colston (to name a few) on the market. But depending on their landing spots, the best fantasy option at the position could be Lloyd. During a conversation with CSN New England, he said he was “very interested” in playing for the Patriots and OC Josh McDaniels. I felt the same sentiment when I interviewed Lloyd for NFL Fantasy LIVE – I even tried to hand him a Patriots helmet that he laughed off and said he wouldn’t hold just yet. If you’re a fantasy fan, there’s no better place for Lloyd than playing in McDaniels’ offense with a superstar like Tom Brady under center. In his lone full season with McDaniels calling the offensive shots (Denver, 2010), Lloyd was the top-scoring wide receiver in fantasy football.

Redskins have better shot at Griffin: It’s a virtual guarantee that the Redskins will have a new starting quarterback in 2012, but who will it be? Well, a recent report suggests that Manning isn’t interested in joining the ‘Skins. Furthermore, the Washington Post believes the team has “a better chance to complete a trade with the St. Louis Rams for the second overall choice in next month’s draft.” That would lead to the selection of Baylor QB Robert Griffin III, who would instantly become the favorite to start. With an offensive head coach like Mike Shanahan at the helm, it would be a very nice landing spot for RG3, both on the field and in fantasy land.
